Whether or not you've kept up with the series in the last ten years, it's hard to believe there was ever a time when 'Family Guy' was in danger of cancellation. Now past 200 episodes and with Seth MacFarlane's star ever on the rise, the series can attract just about any guest star it wants! Case in point, did you ever think Johnny Depp would make an appearance reprising the classic character of Edward Scissorhands? Check out a first look inside!
This Sunday, 'Family Guy' will reach the honor esteemed for any TV series, let alone animation, debuting its 200th episode with "Yug Ylimaf." The outing will see Stewie Griffin's time machine going haywire, reversing the flow of time itself and winding back through 'Family Guy's' critically-acclaimed, and often controversial history. But with 200 episodes under their belt, and having survived one cancellation already, is it time for 'Family Guy' to throw in the towel? Creator Seth MacFarlane weighs in.
People have been saying since the very beginning of 'Family Guy' all the way back in 1999 that it took pages from the original iconic cartoon family 'The Simpsons,' and the latest coincidence is only going to give them more ammunition. 'The Simpsons' season 24 premiere will boast some impressive star-power by returning 5 of Bart's former flames with celebrity voices, and now 'Family Guy' is set to do the same for Brian. When will the episode air, and who will be the ghosts of girlfriends past?
Just when you thought the next season of 'Family Guy' couldn't get any weirder after recruiting Johnny Depp to reprise the iconic role of Edward Scissorhands, they go and pull a holy hat trick. After an initial appearance as himself a year ago, and making a cameo in Seth MacFarlane's feature-film debut 'Ted,' Ryan Reynolds will make his third appearance for the animation mogul on 'Family Guy.' But who will he be playing exactly, and when will it air?
We know what some of you are thinking: 'Family Guy' is still on?! Yes. Yes it is. In fact, it will probably stay on for the foreseeable future as it continues to bring in countless millions for everyone involved each year. Whether you like it or not, the Seth MacFarlane family of animated programs (which also includes 'The Cleveland Show' and 'American Dad') are here to stay, even as MacFarlane himself focuses his attention to the big screen after the success of 'Ted.' All three of his shows will be present at Comic Con this year and to help remind you of this fact, three new posters have been released to get the fans excited.
Kellan Lutz might not be the highest profile handsome face of the 'Twilight' saga, but he certainly puts himself out there plenty more than Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner. So while you're not likely to catch R. Pattz popping up on 'Family Guy,' or even a Time Warner Cable commercial, you can count on Kellan Lutz to pick up the slack.
The Emmys can be rather confusing for all their rules and regulations, in that certain shows can't compete, or that animation can't submit itself for writing categories, instead remaining its own category. Now, the latest Emmy ballot has the writers of 'Family Guy, 'The Simpsons' and others hopping mad, but what does 'Community' have to do with it?
This week wasn't too ridiculous, thanks to people still recovering from BBQ meat comas, but then the middle of the week hit and Kathie Lee Gifford stuck her foot in her mouth and some clown gave one of those 'Toddlers & Tiaras' girls her own show. Oh, and Seth MacFarlane said something about Jewish people.
